like that for the people whom you are going to benefit, actually. i don't want to knock the idea that the thing is entirely useless but the whole thing is predicated on the assumption that somehow you can get rid of illegal immigrants. and therefore, what we want to do is come up with a set of penalties and incentives which will somehow reduce the influx of new illegal immigrants and will somehow get rid of the stop of illegal immigrants. and i don't think that those are possible feasible objectives. and for the very simple reason that each time we try and do something like this, at the washington level, things really get worse for the illegal immigrants and we don't really gain anything in terms of what is commonly known as controlling our borders. and the main reason is that we have a right brain-left brain approach to illegal immigrants. the right brain says they are immigrants and therefore we should be kind to them. we should be considerate to them. but the left brain says oh but they're illegal and therefore we believe in the rule of law and therefore we should be unkind to

that people have been fretting about. consider the lower price of gasoline a tax cut. we don't talk about it enough. well can't pin it down directly to what people spend. but we know gasoline has to help, right, because it's all about disposable income. if $1 goes to opec and the other dollar goes to macy's. i think it's one for one in terms of the spending department. # bulls don't want oil to go too much lower because then you would see the whole oil and gas patch get hammered. we can't lose that cohort. it's too hasn't. still, it's huge to see gasoline at a two-year low as it was today. fourth, we're getting a better yield curve. oh, there's some gibberish, right? major positive, though. what does it mean? take the average rate on a five-year certificate of deposit. which according to rate watch is right now 0.82%. do you know that's the same it's been for ages? but the five-year treasury is now at 1.4%. so you subtract the 0.85 from the 1.4 and realize you have a huge net interest margin for the banks. every time they issue these crowd-pleasing cds and use the money to buy treasuries.
